The 15 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins from Nayapul. It is a thrilling and a fascinating journey set on a well-trodden path through small villages.

Is the Annapurna Base Camp Trek the right kind of trip for me? Good to know before you decide

There are 10 days of strenuous trekking on this trip. You’ll be trekking 5-7 hours each day and at altitudes well over the 4000 metres mark sometimes. So always take altitude sickness into account for your safety.

It’s very important if you have an average fitness and health levels the trip will be the best one for you at all times. While on trek the trekking lodges, known as teahouses, have only basic facilities. Hot water may not always be available and may cost extra, so as the access to electricity points for charging devices. You may get Wi-Fi facilities at some locations, but network connections and signal might be weaker.

As the trek is set outdoors this makes it unpredictable and uncertain. In case of high risk weather conditions the trip is likely to run on an amended itinerary.

Is the Annapurna Base Camp trek safe?

Yes, Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is absolutely safe but with timely preparation and care. Be reminded though that trekking is an adventure sport that comes with seen and unforeseen risks. Trekking Planners trek team is always well equipped to tackle with any kind of accidents if it occurs. We take great care in designing our treks and itineraries to ensure safety on the trek is prioritized and looked after.

Which is the best season to visit the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking region?

The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is an all season trekking circuit that sees adventures throughout the year. Looking for quaint and less frequented paths than summer or monsoon season is the best. In the summer/monsoon (June, July, and August), the temperature ranges between 19°C/66.2°F to 4°C/39.2°F which results in strong haze from the sun and heavy rainfall.

Ideally the best and the popular season is the autumn (fall) or spring to be at the Annapurna region. The average temperature ranges between 12-21 degrees Celsius. The days are generally long and warm while the nights are comparatively cooler. It is one of the best times to witness the green cultivable fields, and the flora and fauna on the trails.

The winter months of December to February, the weather is extremely cold and unbearable. The temperature ranges between 9.3°C/48.74°F to -20°C/-4°F. It poses posing all kinds of difficulty for trekking. This is the time which is overlooked by novice trekkers.

What kind of accommodation will i get during the trek?

You will get a three star accommodation in Kathmandu and in Pokhara. During the trekking days the accommodation will be very simple and basic based on a twin sharing basis. We spend the night at lodges and guesthouses. If lucky we might get attached bathrooms. Trekking Planner Inc. always tries its best to provide you with a grade accommodation up into the mountains.
